hijacks the most important systems of your body, including your endocrine system, nervous system and digestive system. These are the three main areas that tend to be compromised in most individuals. When we can work to reduce stress, these systems restore and optimize their function. The benefits that come from that are infinite...glowing skin, healthy weight, better sleep, reduced anxiety and more energy, just to name a few.
What are your feel good hobbies?
I love to dance. When I realized I needed more play in my life, I started going out dancing every Saturday night with my girlfriends. It quickly became one of my favorite weekend activities.
I also teach beat based spin classes which I absolutely love. I see teaching as a way to give my heart, soul and energy to the people in my classes. There’s nothing quite like it.
I also love making playlists on both Soundcloud and Spotify. If I had taken a different career path, I think I would be a DJ. Luckily, spin classes are my outlet for sharing my music.
Cooking nourishing food for family and friends is definitely a feel good hobby for me.
Writing uplifting content, whether that is in the form of an instagram post or something bigger, inspiration naturally wants to move through me in that way and it feels so good when I create the space for that.
What are some of your top tips for staying healthy and radiant when travelling and on the go? (mentally/physically/emotionally)?
Once again, mediation is a must for me. It gives me the ability to have greater perspective when things don’t go “perfectly” as planned.
Making sure I am well fed is always a priority. I usually research a few healthy spots in the area so that I know where to get a healthy/organic meal upon arriving. I always travel with clean + nutrient dense snacks. Some of my favorites include coconut butter packets,
avocados, 90% dark chocolate, sunflower seeds and Kalumi Beauty Bars. Always.
I also like to look up where I can take some sort of high energy, group fitness class. Spin classes are my favorite, but I also love yoga and kickboxing. I’m not attached to getting in a workout, but if I feel like I need to burn through some energy and move around, I make sure I know where to get my fix.
In addition to traveling with my elixirs, I intentionally seek out organic markets and juice bars that carry adaptogen shots or various tonics that include adaptogens. I swear by them.
